    Waste

    Today we have many jobs that are a waste and are created just to give someone a job. At school I see 5 people in the office that are not needed but the principal wants to be nice and give them a job. We as taxpayers are paying for unnecessary placements that are not needed. The...

    I once asked a question here on EP last year if anyone would move across the country for a great job. I got a variety of answers mainly leaning in the direction of yes. One that sticks in my mind is from someone that said they would go in order to find “any job.” Would you...
